Marcus King Raises $80,000 for MusiCares with Four Of A Kind Live Stream

Marcus King

 24 year old phenom singer and songwriter, Marcus King, announced today Four of A Kind, Live From Nashville live stream event series and auction raised $80,000 for MusiCares, with Spotify matching proceeds donated through their Spotify COVID-19 Music Relief project.
 
Discussing the event recently with Pollstar Magazine, King stated,

The idea to do four shows came about because I wanted to give people some variety. If we’re playing a three- or four-night run, we don’t like to repeat material or recycle anything.” He added, “We are supporting MusicCares and helping musicians in these trying times because they’ve been a success and musicians are getting hit pretty hard not getting to do what we love.”

The series took place over four weeks every Monday, July 13 – August 3 and included notable musical guests such as Billy Strings, Brent Hinds from Mastodon, Jennifer Hartswick, Devon Gilfillian as well as singer-songwriter Early James. The event received widespread media acclaim from tastemaker media such as  Rolling Stone who praised the last performance of the series who stated,

With a cast of Nashville musicians like Devon Gilfillian and Early James, the singer-guitarist breathes new life into the Band’s warhorse.

The event was held in a safe and socially distant production space in Nashville and on-demand viewing of the performances ended yesterday. Watch performance clips including “Say You Will” here and “Honey” here.
